The Librarian Characters ï eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF Characters ✓ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF ✓ Salley Vickers Salley Vickers ✓ 8 Free download Nd to start a new job as a children's librarian But the apparently pleasant town is not all it seems Sylvia falls in love with an older man but it's her connection to his precocious young daughter and her neighbour. starsThe Librarian written by Salley Vickers is a dream novel if you are a booklover It is of course set predominately in a library and follows the journey of Sylvia Blackwell a young woman who takes up the position of a Children s Librarian in a declining library The story that gently unfolds is one of friendship love aspirations and the power of booksIn the year 1958 a twenty five year old woman Sylvia Blackwell leaves her life in Swindon for a new one in the small market town of East Mole Sylvia has scored a position as a Children s Librarian in the uaint little town s library No sooner has Sylvia settled into her new post when love comes into her life in the form of a local married man This causes scandal in East Mole and threatens her much loved position At the same time as Sylvia negotiates her feelings for the married man she also develops a relationship with his daughter and the son of her neighbour Over the course of the novel these relationships grow and change Sylvia also faces a new threat in the form of pressures over the continued existence of the library and her position The Librarian is a book that looks at human relationships and reminds of how our lives can be enhanced by booksSalley Vickers is an author I was yet to explore until the opportunity came my way to review her latest novel The Librarian I have heard of the notable author of The Cleaner of Chartres and after reading this novel I have made a pact to seek out The Cleaner of Chartres sooner rather than later I selected this title to read based on the title and setting alone I was rewarded with a fine read indeedThe appeal of The Librarian for me personally immediately came from the presentation of the hard copy of the book itself The Librarian is one of those books that is an absolutely delight to have between your hands The cover design is exuisite It is embossed with a background print of a library and woven around this is a vine like leaf design which is embossed with decadent gold leaves Once I opened the book itself I discovered inside the front cover is a print that I noted is from the Victorian and Albert Museum and it s simply gorgeous Now that I have sold you the appearance of the book it is time to talk mechanicsSalley Vickers is obviously a skilled writer in the fiction field The Librarian is grounded well in her time period 1958 and the attention to detail in terms of her setting comes across as authentic I enjoyed this aspect of the novel very much Vickers is also acutely aware of the moral codes social changes happening and the shifting social attitudes of this time Vickers is conscientious in inserting these key details into her novelIn terms of the characters that appear in The Librarian Vickers has a firm grasp on her character set From the very well drawn lead Sylvia through to the secondary characters each has been outlined with care I enjoyed the interactions between the lead and the younger side characters it was a pleasure to read Overall I found Sylvia to be uite an inspiring young woman for her time and I was uite jealous of her position as a Children s LibrarianThe plot featured in The Librarian was easy to follow and reader friendly There are a few problems that arise for our characters and I liked the way in which Salley Vickers approached these issues There was plenty of depth and interest related to the main themes presented in this delightful novel Vickers also presents a nice resolution to her new novel which I appreciatedWhat I will draw from The Librarian is simply the joy of reading and what the act of imparting a passion for books with others can do to transform lives No matter the time or place books our libraries and the important caretakers of our libraries have a vital role in all communities The Librarian is a passionate story that will bring a ray of sunshine to your day especially if you are a bookwormI wish to thank Penguin Books Australia for providing me with a free copy of this book for review purposes

Summary The Librarian

The Librarian Characters ï eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF Characters ✓ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF ✓ Salley Vickers Salley Vickers ✓ 8 Free download S' son which will change her life and put them the library and her job under threatHow does the library alter the young children's lives and how do the children fare as a result of the books Sylvia introduces them. Who is Sylvia What is she Some spoilersIt is 1958 and 25 year old Sylvia arrives in East Mole to take up the post of Children s Librarian Keen to share her love of children s literature with the local youngsters Sylvia hopes to transform the dowdy unloved section of the library into a welcoming hub for the children of this parochial village But as we know the road to hell is paved with good intentions And when she meets handsome Dr Hugh Bell also newly arrived in East Mole and with a snooty wife and precocious daughter in tow it seems that not all of Sylvia s intentions are uite so goodI m afraid this novel didn t work for me at all Throughout the book twenty first century considerations and values are shoe horned into mid twentieth century rural England The author seems determined to make several social points for example the benefits of a grammar school education versus the iniuity of the 11 examination The characters border on caricatures the nice neighbours the horrid ones the snobbish ones the uirky ones And Sylvia herself veers suddenly and uite unbelievably from young virginal innocent to the role of the other woman and thence to the delivery of a foul mouthed tirade No Such an uncharacteristic swerve jars horribly and wrong foots the reader to an unacceptable extent This is not of course to say that young women didn t have illicit affairs in the 50s but Sylvia s use of the f bomb is not only out of tune with well brought up young women of the time but also out of step with her character Reading the author notes it appears that Salley Vickers has worked as a special needs teacher a university literature lecturer and a psychoanalyst and it seems to me that she has tried to incorporate all these disciplines into her latest book I have enjoyed some of this author s previous work but here her intentions are almost palpable The rendering of Sylvia and Hugh s affair simply fails to ring true her insistence on making social points comes across as preachy and the anachronistic feel of this novel results in a bumpy read Lovely edition though Nice work Viking
